The following is a brief history and recent maintenance performed. After being restored several years ago and enjoyed by the previous owners, I acquired the car. I then had a well known Jaguar expert, Butch McKenzie of NC do a complete review and freshening. All mechanical components were checked and replaced as needed.

1. Checked & changed all fluids as needed.
2. Changed belts & hoses for safety.
3. Re calibrated the carburetors and set the idle.
4. Replaced wiper rubber blades & one wiper arm
5. Installed a new correct fuel pump and related fuel lines.
6. Checked the compression and found it to be excellent and with-in specs. 174, 170, 175, 171, 173 & 174. This reaffirmed a recently engine rebuild.
7. A very critical and expensive valve adjustment was performed after the compression test was done.
8. A new complete stainless steel exhaust system was just installed. The exhaust manifold has been ceramic coated to keep the cast iron from rusting.
9. Of course new plugs, wires, filter & some minor seals replaced.
10. The radiator flow and temperature was checked. A new temperature sending unit was installed to ensure an accurate temperature reading. This car runs very cool on the road and in traffic.
11. Installed new wheel knock offs & balanced wheels as needed. The Michelin tires are in excellent condition.
12. Checked all the brakes and found them to be almost new.
13. Several small chrome items were upgraded to enhance the car's finish. Generally the “Jag” was in such great shape most things were done for peace of mind while driving it.
